MKTG 699: Research and Thesis

Credit Hours: (1-6) Hours and credits to be arranged with the approval of the student's thesis supervisor, advisor, department chairperson and the Dean of the Graduate College.


Detailed Description of Content of the Course

A thesis can be an elective or a requirement in a Master of Science program at the option of the department. A student planning to do a thesis should submit a proposal to the dean of the Graduate College at least two weeks before the end of the semester preceding the semester when the work will begin. This proposal is submitted on a form, available in the Graduate Office, which must be signed by the student's adviser, by the graduate faculty member who will direct the work, and by the other members of the student's committee. The particular style used in writing a thesis is determined by the thesis director, but general rules regarding style can be specified by the graduate faculty in the department involved. Basic guidelines for all theses can be obtained from the Graduate College Office. Students who plan to do a thesis or graduate recital are advised to begin serious planning of this work during the first semester of enrollment as a graduate student. Past experiences have shown that it very difficult for a student to do a respectable job on the thesis or recital if all work is concentrated in the last semester before graduation.
